Video of the week: Nissan Skyline GT-R KPGC10 cutaway model

May 13, 2015 in video

The video displaying this Nissan Skyline GT-R KPGC10 cutaway model was made by Daniel O’Grady from Wasabi Cars and I must say it looks awesome!

Its builder, Mr Junji Sawada, created something way cooler than an ordinary cutaway drawing: a cutaway scale model in 1/24 size and it is based upon a standard Tamiya model. You can see through most of the parts and if you look through the trunklid (or bootlid) you can see the special GT-R fueltank and spare wheel. The last two parts have been handcrafted as they were not part of the original.

Time to start again with the wrecked series. Some time ago I found this fatally damaged hakosuka Skyline on Minkara:

If this compressed bootspace doesn’t impress enough, there was also damage on the front side of the car: Read the rest of this entry →

The owner of this beautiful Skyline KGC10 took this picture at sundown and it just blew away all my hopes of being a photographer this good. 😉

Remember the different illustration styles of a JDM Skyline I posted a few weeks ago?
JDM Drawings: Hakosuka Skyline KPGC10
If you do: you’re in luck because there is a second one with only the Hakosuka Skyline KPGC10!

Especially the mixtures are very cool: Skyline+Porsche is simply too bizarre to see! Read the rest of this entry →

Amazing what you can do with a Kenmeri Skyline, Hakosuka Skyline, Fairlady Z, some photoshop skills and fooling around with different JDM styles:

I especially love the Grand Champ Hello Bosozoku style! 😉

Japanese rustoseums (part twentyseven)

April 26, 2011 in rustoseums

This little red shortnose Skyline Coupe KGC10 is rusting away somewhere on a junkyard. It must be there for a long time now: even a tree is growing out of the side windows!

This 1800GL coupe is probably the most unloved model of the hakosuka Skyline because it lacks both the extended wheelbase of the other coupes and at the same time it lacks the smooth lines of the sedan/wagon. You can’t even make GT-R replica out of it, so naturally everybody scraps these little coupes…
